Letter from the President

 

THE PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Dear Lafayette Generals and Friends,

The Purpose of the Alumni Association is to promote fellowship and scholarships, as stated in our By-Laws. Therefore, we are on the move, enjoying outreach to students, new ways to save money and make money. Ms. Gatsos, teacher for LHS General Store, and her students, were our guests at our Christmas Dinner and Chili Supper. All the merchandise sold in the store are designed by the students.  All the items were well received at the Dinners and because of the knowledge the students are learning in developing a business plan and selling merchandise, the nights were very successful and the students donated $150 to the Scholarship fund.  Our entertainment for the Holiday Dinner was Ms. Fallon and the String Orchestra.  Ryan Marsh and the Madrigal Singers sang at the Chili Supper.   The Alumni donated $100 towards a new Baby Grand piano.

Some of you bought mulch from the football team and saved bottle caps for a bench.  Some of these seemingly small things help show our interest and appreciation for the school and our future leaders.

Bryne Jacobs, Principal, attended a meeting informing us of the new LHS Endowment Fund with the Bluegrass Community Foundations to raise dollars for Lafayette. You will be hearing more about this later.

The classes of 1950’s donated $1000 to our scholarships fund. The 60’s sock hop donated $1675 to the Performing Arts of Lafayette.  The recipient of that donation was the LHS Band. Please read the article about fundraising in this newsletter.

WE cannot continue the Lafayette legacy without your membership, donations, attendance and time to keep this association alive.  Thank all of YOU for doing what you can to help!

 

Linda L. Bach, President, LHS’62
